Holy shit man SOOOOO wild that you would bring up that show in this thread!!!! I had through a VERY strange series of events ended up at the Akron airport the night before that show without a place to stay so I decided I would just hang around the airport till the next morning when I was supposed to be picked up by some friends who were on the way from Pa. well long story short I was reading an Appalachian trail guide trying to look as inconspicuous as possible when out of the corner of my eye I catch a glimpse of someone who looked JUST LIKE Wasserman.....OH SHIT!!! That IS Wasserman!!!! right behind him walked a VERY drunk Bob Weir so I made a beeline over to them and ask Mr. Bob to sign my trail guide which he did....only he signed it ...." to Josh, Buffalo Bobby Weir" so I'm like WTF???? Buffalo Bobby????? I noticed Bob was holding a book in his hand but paid it no mind UNTIL a lady came over the intercom and said...." would the passenger on flight &*&^% who ACCIDENTALLY picked up the Buffalo Bill book please turn it in to the check in desk" WHAAAAT!?!?!?!? Bobby in his drunken state had stolen another passengers book and must have been flipping through it right before I ask him to sign my book ...so I got a Buffalo Bobby Autograph!!!!!! went onto the show the next day and saw the first ever Ashes and Glass as a soundcheck, only about ten heads in front of the stage when they playd it....man what a great weekend!!!!! That is the only time I met any of the band and I will NEVER forget the laugh I got when I realized why in the hell he signed off as Buffalo Bobby!!! PRICELESS!!!!!!
